Hamzah Sheeraz Betting Preview

Sheeraz enters this bout searching for his 18th victory and is undefeated. His most recent bout was a second round knockout against River Wilson-Bent back in November of last year.

Out of his 17 wins, 11 of them have come by way of knockout. In fact, his last 11 fights have finished either by knockout or his opponent was retired. In his last three fights, he has finished the battle in five rounds or less.

He is arguably better in the close range battle, but can also do some damage in long range strikes. The scary part is, he is never really going for knockouts, as he is aiming for the distance each bout and they are coming naturally.

Sheeraz will be up to the challenge in what he considers to be the “lion’s den” for his opponents home crowd. This will be one heck of an opportunity that he cannot afford to slip up on.

Dmytro Mytrofanov Betting Preview

Mytrofanov is returning to the ring after a unanimous decision victory against Juan Carlos Rodriguez back in April of this year. This increased his resume to 13 wins and is undefeated.

When looking at his 13 wins, six of them have come by knockout. He has not had a knockout since 2019, but was able to retire Berikbay Nurymbetov two fights ago.

Both of their resumes speak for themselves, but Mytrofanov will not be looking for the kill. Instead, he will likely make this an engaging battle and hope for a decision in his favor.

Mytrofanov is also at a height disadvantage, as he is about four inches shorter. This could okah a role in his reach and ability to fight in close range.
